International Youth Arts Festival
Creative Youth organises and delivers the International Youth Arts Festival Kingston (IYAF) the leading youth arts festival in the UK, if not the world! Launched in 2009 IYAF has become a ‘must see’ arts festival and often considered a precursor to Edinburgh Fringe.
Showcasing the best young talent nationally and internationally IYAF provides a platform where emerging young artists aged 5-26 years old can reveal and share their skills and artistic expression with local and visiting audiences. Over the last 8 years the growth has been phenomenal; more than 30,000 young people have participated in delivering the festival as artists, project managers, interns, volunteers in Kingston Upon Thames.
Next year will be our 10th Festival and will run from the 6th to 15th July 2018.
Applications to participate are now open. For more information please visit the IYAF website.
Applicants may be professional or amateur, and children or young adults may be involved as performers, creators and artists or as producers and event managers.
Applications can feature work of any genre: theatre, music, dance, film, comedy, circus, cabaret, visual arts and more.
